Tom is a British landscape and seascape painter, whose thoughtful and romantic work captures the landscape in a raw, natural way, depicting the light, climate and beauty of his Scottish home with authenticity and power.
Tom’s inspiration comes from a lifelong interest in art and art history coupled with his love of the great outdoors, particularly the sea, the coastal way of life, and of rivers and fishing. He always paints locations which he knows well or has visited personally and which have affected him emotionally. The appeal could come from the atmosphere, the weather and the light, his own mood, the people he is with…and he tends to be drawn back to the same places time and again. This gives Tom a deep understanding of a place, and he has forged many close relationships with his subjects over the years.
